The original sizzix has a lever that you push down to put pressure on it. The bigkick has a crank with rollers. I have the original sizzix but I have used them both. You can cut bigger dies with the bigkick. Also, it is easier to cut the long die with the bigkick than it is with the original one.

My cricut will not cut felt At least the first 2 tries I did. SO not sure. Was not happy about that. I am going to get the sizzix. Now should I get the regular one or the bigger one?
Anyone have any extra coupons >>>

The big one works as well as the regular one (I tested on my friend's sizzix, she had the regular one and the bigkick), I think the big one just allows you to do more stuff (for scrapbooking). If you buy them at Joann's (in store only), you don't need a coupon. They are marked 40% off right now.

What dies and convertors are needed with the sizzix orig. I just bought the machine it will be here this week. There are no places here that sell the dies so I will have to order. Can anyone make suggestions as to which ones you have or have used that make good clippies. If you have picts please post or link me to the dies pretttttty please.
Thanks so much.
Peppermint

I bought a set of 4 hearts, they're a bit small, but cute. I would buy the sets. (Mine were $12.99 at HL) If you got the original Sizzix (with the lever) You'll need a converter. It's the big magnet thing. Then you can use your cuttlebug dies also. Unless you dont' want to use those dies.

Cynthia, I didn't even see the post where you asked what felt is used. I was using the cheap stuff at HL, but I really want to use the 100% wool, I think that's why I'm holding back. Where did you get your's.
Stupid me, I've been to Hancocks twice and TOTALLY forgot to look for the wool.

Hi girl..lol..I did mentioned it....I'm using the 100% wool from here: A Child's Dream Come True - Handwork Supplies - Felt&Felting Crafts and also the 100% Polyester from here: Search Results Gotta say tho, that i prefer the 100% wool better than the 100% Poly. There's also a seller on ebay, id feltpro ( eBay Seller: feltpro: Fabric, Dolls items on eBay.com ) that others had bought from (personally, i hvn't bought from the seller). I've been to my Hancocks and sadly, they only carry the blended felt and I didn't wanna waste my money for that just for experimenting sake..lol...
